Persistent faith (Matthew 15)
Let’s pray. Father, we’ve come to the point today of sharing your word together and I’m always enthusiastic at this part because I know the life that it brings to us, Lord. The praise and worship is so important, it connects us to you, Lord. We worship you also through our tithes and offerings, but now is the moment in which we open our hearts and spirits to receive your word. Help us to have a teachable heart, Lord Jesus that even though it may be a word we have heard before that we can always receive something new from it. Your word is living and active and I pray for that life to touch our lives today. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
I invite you to go with me to the Book of Mathew, Chapter 15. We’ll try to be as brief as possible, I want to make the most of the time. Mathew, Chapter 15, starting at verse 21. This is a text that can be very difficult to understand and interpret because it has certain confrontations that can be difficult to understand specially because it involves a particular woman. If we read the story here we’re going to see what I’m talking about.
